how is delighted to see an interview with direct quotes from mitch mcconnell appeared he said we're not raising taxes to avoid the sequester appeared out rather have the savings over a decade -- from mitch mcconnell. he said we're not raising taxes to avoid sequester. i would rather have the savings over a decade. i am not -- i would rather have the sequester them lose the savings. i would rather have a different ly structured sequester. we're not giving up savings. we either had the sequester or reconstruction it differently. ,hat i think you're going to do at the one thing he could have a compromise on, maybe the only thing you have a real compromise like theoneis republicans savings for the sequestered but they do not want to come out. the democrats theoretically would like the sequesters savings but they do not want to have domestic discretionary. they would both like to in the sequestered but republicans will not do it in a way that allows spending to go higher rather than lower. you can take that all out of entitlements. you could delay certain entitlements in the future. r
heard from republicans -- it is like mitch mcconnell who said his job was to see that obama is never reelected. so, he has an edge year. he does have leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> rich mcconnell is on record as saying that -- mitch mcconnell is on the records sayi thahe knows that the election makes some people think that the republicans are going to roll over. that does not sound like compromise. >> your definition of compromise is rolling over and excepting higher tax rates. that is the democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest bias. the president ran -- i will say it -- the most negative campaign. he did not run on his record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there is one thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax rate on two percent of the population by four. ? that is the smallest mandate in american history. >> can i say something? >> no, not until i am done. this is true. i am not going to get into this for meridian -- >what the republicans will agree to come up brainer came out with --
, but are the old staying, too. >> oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> on the panel this week, writer and fox news contributor judy miller. jove oldman, talk radio and jim pinkerton contributing editor the american conservative magazine, and alan colmes, author of thank liberals for saving america and i'm jon scott, fox news watch is on right now. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration and she's the point person, is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better and if she did know better she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has got to start paying a price around this place, but i am dead set on making sure we don't promote anybody that was an essential player in the benghazi debacle. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and o
or belief that the other side, that would be mitch mcconnell, the senate republican leader, or john boehner, the speaker, are up to a big deal? >> i don't know if he has confidence in boehner and mitch mcconnell but he certainly has confidence at this point in the idea that the american people, the majority of the american people, back the whole idea of tax increases on the wealthy. the white house said pre-election polling and postelection exit polls show that more americans -- chris: how do you put together -- everybody watching has an opinion on that. the very wealthy should pay their share at least and not avoid it. but they also seem to applaud every time either candidate on either said said we got to work together. >> the white house dream would be to see boehner peel away some republicans and work with the democrats in the house on the deal. that's what they want. chris: will paul ryan join john boehner, the speaker, in trying to work out a deal? or he will be a rejectionist and set up the big rebel flag and say i'm going to be the die-hard? >> no one knows the answer to that questio
't have to run for re-election? and one of the other key players is mitch mcconnell. what is the dynamic there do you think? >> i think the president, first time i'm talking about the mutual background on capitol hill, the president may be at a point where he has gotten obama care, which is clearly now not going to be repealed, he has created a bigger government in the direction he wants to go in. and he may want to consolidate and having lived through two solid years of not getting anything done, he may decide he doesn't want to spend four years. the odds are very high the republicans will keep the house in 2014. does he really want four years of gridlock or does he want to take a big step, which is a gamble, open the door, sit down and have genuine conversations? and frankly, as he appoints some new cabinet officers, find some republicans that could serve in the cabinet, in a serious way, that would join ray la hood. he has really been sort of isolated as the secretary of transportation. >> we've seen some comments from both sides and yes we want to try to come up with an agreement, we
of the willingness to work with drawing lines in the dust, we get a different phenomenon. mitch mcconnell took a much harder line, and it really was he has a mandate for his failed policies. that is not what this election was about. anything that happens now asked to meet the approval of the house republicans, or it is not going anywhere. that i think is in many ways also a false bluster, because what we see going on in the senate is riling change that mcconnell does not necessarily control, which is 48 senators from across the board working with the fix that debt coalition and the business community to come up with a simpson-bowles template. there will not be a plan. >> what you see is the scenario for the link up? >> especially on the fiscal cliff? >> you will not see much difference between this on this. mort, i think it is impossible to write serious law during a lame duck that would constitute an agreement with any substance other than, and something set up behind them once again, to go into the fact if the next congress does not actually produce them. but the idea that they could do something t
. and given how little congress works, some of that has to be mitch mcconnell stopping by harry reid's family dinner to block passage of the mashed potato. (laughter) but i say so what? that's just politics. and mitch mcconnell is warning it could get worse. >> if the majority chooses to end the filibuster, if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate then the fighting, the bitterness, and the gridlock will only get worse. in the name of efficiency they would prevent the very possibility of compromise and threaten to make the disputes of the past few years look like mere pillow fights. >> stephen: he's right. to me they already look like pillow fights. i'm pretty sure joe lieberman's jowls are memory foam. (laughter) so you've been warned, harry reid! take away mitch mcconnell's filibuster and he will strike back by obstructing everything you do! or let him keep the filibuster so he can obstruct everything you do! (laughter) i think the choice is clear. we'll be right back. (cheers and applause) -Ïx=uhr(ú'2lt:eá (cheers and applause) >> stephen: welcome back, ever
won. which may be bad news for mitch mcconnell. i'll explain in a minute. sarah, ben chandler without a job is a dangerous potential if you're mitch mcconnell running for re-election. >> it'll be interesting to see how the minority leader handles politics heading into his own election as you just eluded to. >> he's in a vice grip. he's got a potential primary challenge he was worried about. >> here the thing about mitch mcconnell. he is a smart political operative. he will put together a great team there. he's already reached out to rand paul. i think he'll be fine. we're already talking about 2014, by the way. >> i'm going to talk about 2016 in a minute. i don't know how much mitch mcconnell is able to be a good negotiator for republicans. did he earn the right to lead senate republicans next year? this has not been a good run for him. >> i'm not sure he gets all the blame for it. there's a little bit of blame to go around. you know, senator cornyn probably will get some of the blame. some of the blame goes to the individual candidates who said stupid things. i mean, you can't really
to minority leader this past weekend in the senate, mitch mcconnell, he says we'll give anything, but one thing we're not going to do is raise these tax rates because they generally believe, and i think they're right about this, raising those tax rates could cause a double dip recession. >> paul: what's the alternative. if the president insists on raising tax rates and the republicans say no. all the president has to do is let the taxes go up on january 1st, he gets the tax increase anyway and beat the heck out of the republicans, for blaming whatever economic consequences happen and then in two months, they're coming back to him and saying, okay, we give in. but he's already got the tax rate. so my question to you, steve, is what's the way out here? is there a way out that if you see it for the republicans? >> well, the republicans and we showed in our editorial this week, the numbers do add up. the republicans should basically say, look, we will close the loopholes. if do you that the people that get hit the hardest are the rich. but i think the most important outcome is to make sure th
. but the minority leader mitch mcconnell says that would be the equivalent of blowing up the senate. doug mckelway with the news live on capitol hill for us tonight. doug, they call it the nuclear option. >> yeah, they call it the nuclear option because the party that exercises the nuclear option, that pulls the trigger on the nuclear option can suffer ultimately the fallout from that nuclear chain reaction if they ultimately become the minority party at some point in the future. minority leader mitch mcconnell put it this way during a floor speech on the senate today. >> are you prepared to live under the rules you are now demanding? >> the nuclear option would allow the majority to end filibuster or defeat amendment bias a simple majority vote. not the 60 votes or the 3/5ths majority vote that the senate rules have required and put into place for better than 30 years now. threshold that the historians say honor the founder's intent to limit the tyranny of the majority. >> the nuclear option is a power grab by senate majority leader harry reid. >> but both parties are actually guilty of thr

the leaders that i grew up with, such as howard baker of tennessee and mitch mcconnell of kentucky today is like the grand canyon. there is simply no comparison. host: was there a particular event that signals the end of what you call the last great senate? guest: there were stages. what i call the great senate of the 1960's and 1970's ended when president reagan was elected. he came in with a lot of republican neophytes and sloughed out a lot of the great senators. -- knocked out a lot of the great senators. the story was not done yet. in the 1980's, the senate came out and functions pretty much like the senate did. in the 1990's, newt gingrich and his senate counterparts took over the congress in 1994. they started straight down. i think the senate has been in a 20-year decline, which i think is about to end. host: back to the phones for our discussion with ira shapiro, author of the last great senate. from our line for democrats, you are on "washington journal." caller: i am calling because i was glad about the outcome of the election. it is time we do something different. the republi
, these are proposals that will take place in the next congress. minority leader mitch mcconnell debated this. here's a bit of that debate. >> mr. president, we believe that there should be one aspect of the change that is that it should be a non-debatable motion of proceeding. simple as that. the american people -- only ones who disagree that think this senate is working well are the republican leader and those republicans in congress. >> to the republican lead center >> yes. i hope the majority leader will stay on the floor here. i gather the way he proposes to affect this rule change is to deal with the simple majority. you didn't address that issue. >> but of course. >> well, -- >> that statement is untrue, and i don't accept that. >> mr. president, i believe i have the floor. that's the point. what the majority leader is saying he will break the rules of the senate in order to change the rules of the senate. it had been the case in the past that it took a super majority of 67, which of course meant that most rule changes occurred because two leaders agreed to them and were proposing them joint
are -- the fiscal cliff right now, what you are in the white house or you are the mitch mcconnell, you have to consider that voters in exit polls are saying that they're willing to take higher taxes, but they think government is too big. it is there. it is within reach. but john boehner has to be given some kind of cover so he can bring 140 republican votes with him. it will be very difficult to do a. obama will have to immediately decide whether he wants to go off the cliff with the bush tax cuts, or if he will try to get something big and mushy like tax reform. it will have to be massaged in such a way through increased revenue and more money flow and fees. anything to avoid that horrible thing called a tax increase. >> we heard the last panel talked a little bit about redistricting and the impact on partisanship, especially in the house. the senate has gotten more ideological itself after last night. the democrats coming in include this gamut from elizabeth warren to heidi high camp. republicans, there are not many of them coming in, but jeff flake is on the oversight. >> jeff blake is a
of what professor dyson has just said, how does the president win over mitch mcconnell, paul ryan, speaker boehner, who have already openly said, no increases in tax rates? >> well, you have to splinter off some republicans, in the senate it will be easier because you just have to get to 60. you might pass the december 31st deadline where you have a few more democrats in the senate. but the problem is always going to be the house. i think there may be a bargain in the -- in the side of coming to republicans and saying, here are cuts. but the price of those cuts will be that 2%. republicans will face a very tough choice in just a very short time. are they the ones that are going to be responsible for giving 98% of americans tax hikes? do the republicans want to be known as the party that raised your taxes for everybody but 2%? >> right. and i think, martin -- >> so, the 2% solution may be a noose around the republicans' neck. >> i think the republicans have little leverage. not just for that reason but a couple of other reasons. if you consider the fact that taxes are at 15% of gdp, spendin
enter and stay in the middle class. >> mitch mcconnell once again blasted the president for what he called campaigning. >> the election's over. he won. congratulations. we've got a hard deadline here, however. and it's still -- he's still out on the campaign trail kind of celebratin celebrating. this is a problem. if the president really wants to reach an agreement, he needs to be talking with the members of his own party right here in washington trying to broker an agreement not out there firing up crowds and giving speeches. >> joining me now is new york democratic congressman steve israel. sir, great to have you with us. mitch mcconnell saying the president should be speaking to members of his own party. interestingly enough, moments ago we heard from someone within mitch mcconnell's party, speaker john boehner, saying he thinks a deal is possible. take a listen. >> it's time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has. but i'm optimistic. >> he's optimistic. we also have boehner saying he is disagreeing with tom cole, one of the
: in the senate, the challenges is bringing together red states and blue states. mitch mcconnell's kentucky is horse country. of the states represented by top congressional leaders, it's the reddest of all. >> among the top leaders of congress involved in fiscal cliff negotiations, the one facing the most home state pressure may be senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. he faces re-election in kentucky, a state where the tea party movement is alive and well. president obama may have won this election but two years ago leaders of the tea party movement elected ron paul's son rand as kentucky senator over an establishment republican. one leader of that movement who runs a high-end audio equipment business says they could do the same thing in 2014, and this time take out mitch mcconnell if he agrees to raise taxes. >> we shall not raise taxes in this country. we do not have a revenue problem. i would like senator mcconnell to recognize that the washington leaders are like a bunch of crack addicts. they need evermore money for evermore growing government and it is at the expense of the ordin
will the governing be status quo, too? senate republican leader mitch mcconnell had a statement that was hardly conciliatory saying, quote, the voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president's first term. they have simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do. now it's tame for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the republican controlled house of representatives and a closely divided senate. house speaker john boehner was more conciliatory. he wrote in a statement, quote, if there is a mandate, it is a mandate for both parties to find common ground. boy, totally different tones in those two messages. realize mitch mcconnell may have a tough fight for re-election, possibly for renomination and for his senate seat in kentucky. boehner makes a statement also on the fiscal cliff negotiations today at 3:30 this afternoon. will either party ultimately have a mandate in those negotiations as they go forward? will republican lawsuits produce soul-searching? does boehner and mcconnell figure out the best thing to do is do al
on capitol hill on this matter of policy. >>> the republicans could not be more annoyed about it. mitch mcconnell releasing a rather angry statement this week condemning the president for choosing to fight this fight in this particular way saying it was with some concern that i read this morning that the president plans to hit the road this week to drum up support for his own personal approach to the short and long-term fiscal challenges we face rather than sitting down with lawmakers of both parties and working out an agreement. he is back out on the campaign trail. you no he what happened the last time he was out on the campaign trail. you know. it makes sense. think about it. put yourself in mitch mcconnell's shoes. if you were mitch mcconnell, you too would be complaining about the president leaving washington to talk about these matters. no republican would want the guy they are negotiating with to be out talking to the country about this issue once you look at how the country feels about this issue. specifically, about what the two parties are negotiating about, their respective positions.
in the senate mitch mcconnell talk tough on the senate floor today. >> if the president is really serious about solving current crises and avoiding future ones, he has it to step up and lead. >> mcconnell was so bold when he was confronted by reporters. he sat silently during a photo op with new republican senators. >> senator mcconnell, are you willing to compromise? >> come on guys, go. come on. >> can you not push me and everybody else? >> yep. >> mcconnell is not responding because he doesn't have an answer. democrats won decisively last week. they protected 23 seats and picked up two more. plus, mcconnell's plan is exactly what the american people voted against. >> the best way forward, the way that will lead to jobs and growth, a smaller deficit and fewer fights is to keep everybody's tax rights where they are for now. figure out a way to avoid the automatic defense cuts scheduled to hit at the end of the year without cutting a penny less than we promised. and committing to the kind of comprehensive tax and entitlement reform that we all claim we want. >> according to mitch mcconnell the
have an obama victory does senator mitch mcconnell come out chases saying look, it's time to cut the deal? and also what does paul ryan think. he will be the darling of the republicans. gwen: do we think that the well of the executive branch can be unpoisoned? >> i think so. i'm reasonably optimistic about the prospects that -- once we put the campaign 3w450eu7bd us, something's going to happen. it will be easier if obama is re-elected. boehner returns as speaker and harry reid returns as the senate leader because they've been in this before. i think president obama would call john boehner. and he would tweak his plan for a concession with republicans. if obama is re-elected, republicans for a brief moment would say, we've got to do a little business with him and then they will move on. gwen: we have to touch on the biggest story of the week which is the super storm sandy. and i wonder in the end -- i know in the beginning i thought to myself, well, in -- only blue states were affected. but i wonder what we saw with christie and bloomberg, whether that at the end didn't reap down
have lost the speakership. whether mitch mcconnell and more adult members of the members the of the senator can put pressure on the house. if they can't change these fundamental dynamics we're headed in the same direction. >> i think mitch mcconnell is the problem because he's headed for re-election. but i think one of the interesting things that boehner said, is this your moment now, mr. president, now leave. that's both the reality and a little bit of trying to pass the buck. but it's the truth. it is going to be up to the president to go into the negotiations and to lead, and continue to listen and find areas where compromise can be built. it is on his shoulders. >> he has to lead publicly as well. >> yes. >> to sell it? >> he has to sell it. you know, there are a couple -- there aren't a lot of republicans i think that play in regards to public pressure, but there are a few. and the president's going to have to work hard, find points of pressure on those people. >> and willing to absorb some blows. >> remember when he ran against hillary clinton and beat her. hillary
here. he does have l leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> mitch mcconnell is on the knows as saying that he that the election makes some thele think tha rolllicans are going to over. "i am here to tell them there's notionto that whatsoever." that does not sound like compromise. compromiseinition of excepting over and higher tax rates. that is an interesng definition. democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest biasas. the president ran -- i will say negative most campgn. hehe did not run on s record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there ione thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax the on twpercrcent of population by four. ? -- by four points? at is the smallest mandate in american history. >> can i say something? >> no, not until i am done. this is true. he is the host. you are not. i am not going to get into this floridian -- whatat the republicans will agre thejohn boeer came out day after the election saying raisee would agree to revenues. there is a difference between rates and revenues. you d
